england and the united states are different places but europe is kind of on the vanguard of the secularism movement, and to the degree that their leading religious institution looks irrelevant or out of step with the times, i think that there's important lessons for us here aut h religious groups and religious institutions accommodate themselves to the wider culture and one of the things that you're gonna see that on here at home, i think in 2013, is the gay marriage question, which is gonna be headed to the supreme court. so to what degree religious institutions can adapt to the larger culture is i think gonna be, there's gonna be a lot there. >> but for a lot of these religious institutions they don't adapt to the wider culture. you know, they take pride in saying, "well, we're counter cultural because we stand for what we believe is right, whether or not the culture agrees." and i think you're right. that's where it really, you know. >> that's where the tsion is. >> the clash comes when you talk about gay marriage because for a lot of religious institutions this is a faith issue, an iss
